welcome aboard. i know your father has contributed some posts onto this forum before. i like the changes to this new outback you show.....the tinted window at the back will be a big help---personally, we tinted all of our windows ourselves and it has made a huge difference, not only for decreasing the glare and heat of the sun, but also for privacy. now i can slip in and change clothes during the daytime without having to close all the curtains. one of the things we are researching is a solar panel and it sure would have been great to have had it factory-installed. but since we didn't get our unit from the factory, but instead from a chap in nova scotia who ordered 5 or 6 units and resold them, we didn't get to choose our options.
good to have you here.

As far as the name "Trillium" as it applies to trailers, are there any trademark issues? I'm guessing not, since (for example) my KZ product is called an Escape and so is the BC-built egg. Of course in both instances one company builds in Canada and the other in the USA. So maybe, are there exclusive rights to build with that name in the respective country? Or is there no exclusivity even within a country? I'm curious.

I guess "Trillium" is a much more unique-sounding name for a trailer than "Escape", though, so perhaps that is why people have a hard time wrapping their brains around 2 different brands with that name attached. Especially when they are both similarly sized FG eggs... it's too easy to think they are siamese twin sisters or something, when in reality they're more like 10th cousins.

What seems unnatural here is the fact that companies typically tend to want to clearly differenciate themselves from one another, not perpetuate confusion between them.

But I do know the Trillium family tree is fairly complex as a result of various failed collaboration attempts and re-births, so I'm guessing we'll never know for sure what the current status is as both current companies seem like they tolerate each other in their current form, and seem to have good reasons to dodge the question instead of giving a point blank answer. It really is up to them to fight it out if they feel a need for it... it just makes it harder for us to explain to other people.

I still don't get the molds argument, though. Seems like anybody can make them, as many trailer brands have been more or less based on the same original molds throughout the years.



Regardless, it's always good to see these guys show up on the forum.

Ok!!! Trillium went bankrupt in 1980 so there for no one owns the rights to trillium get it?. So if you want to spend the $100,000 plus to start manufacturing trilliums and also pay the patient cost so no one can use the same name. you can go ahead. There is more than enough business to go around. There is no need to "fight it out".

As the saying goes "I have no dog in this fight," so I don't care about the logistics. I'm supportive of any company that builds molded fiberglass trailers as I truly believe competition is good for the consumers.

To keep my head from spinning, I've tried to consider the Canadian company "The Outback," while the California company is "Trillium." Works for me, but YMMV

As I said before I am on this site to purely expand my business. Not to argue logistics or fight out anything. I will continue to be as helpful as possible and keep on producing a high quality product.

I think we all can agree that we need that.
